Annual event?

Harpers Bazaar are running a short story competition. You have up to 3,000 words and nearly two months to write something with the theme of 'The Anniversary'.

The prize is publication in the magazine, plus a weekend in a luxury hotel. The winner will be notified in early July, which means if I won I'd probably have time to book the hotel for our wedding anniversary.

That'd make a change from spending it in the van as we usually do. Pity me if I don't win, having to rough it in some desolate location with almost nothing to eat, hardly any wine, the merest hint of cake and chocolate...

Ah well, I expect I'll cope.

If that's where you might end up spending your anniversary, that's not so bad.

Nothing better than a van on a wind-swept deserted beach.

Ha ha - I'm sure you'd survive the 'hardship' of your van!

Maria said...

Mmm, in the rules, the word 'literary' pops up, so that's me out.
And I'm not hoodwinked, i know you love your van.

That looks a great place, a place to relax in and let the worries melt away,

Yvonne.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Rosemary.

That's where we spent part of our honeymoon, Alex /- you're right, it wasn't too bad.

Patsy said...

I shall, Mac.

Patsy said...

Unless it's have the wind drop, Oscar?

Patsy said...

I'll probably struggle through, Susan.

Patsy said...

I doubt my effort will be considered literary enough, Maria - but I have an idea which does at least fit the theme, so I'm going to give it a go.

Patsy said...

It is, Yvonne.

I hope you win and get that fabulous prize for your anniversary!

You know, that beach doesn't look bad for a picnic - just watch out for the sand. Good luck anyway!

Patsy said...

Thanks, Lexa. My entry is in - that's a start.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Nick.
